description and sources of contamination by campylobacter spp. of river water destined for human consumption in brittany, france.presence or absence of campylobacter spp. in water of five rivers upstream from an intake point for drinking water production was investigated, and isolates genetically compared with human, pig and poultry isolates in order to determine their source. river water and drinking water obtained from these rivers were sampled one time per month, over a period of one year, and tested for campylobacter. isolates were typed by pfge. campylobacter was not detected in treated drinking water, but 50% of the ...200919942377
campylobacter from sows in farrow-to-finish pig farms: risk indicators and genetic diversity.sows have been identified as a source of campylobacter contamination in piglets. we carried out a one-year study, in 2008, at 53 farrow-to-finish farms in brittany, france, to determine the proportion of sows excreting campylobacter. we also determined the genotypes of the campylobacter isolates. moreover, generalized estimating equations including repeated effects were used to assess the association between management practices and farm characteristics, and risk of campylobacter shedding by sow ...201121802224
comparison of genetic profiles of campylobacter strains isolated from poultry, pig and campylobacter human infections in brittany, france.five hundred eighty-two campylobacter isolates (177 from humans, 319 from poultry and 86 from pig) collected in brittany, france, in 2003 and 2004 were typed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. the number of human cases increased during the hot season, particularly for c. jejuni. twelve genetic groups out of 27 contained human isolates collected over the two years. these groups had 21.3 and 17.0% of the isolates obtained in 2003 and 2004, respectively. in four cases, isolates from 2003 have the ...200918534783
